There is no evidence that the majority of “tithe-payers”, whether poor or wealthy are ever blessed financially merely because they tithe (see Heb. To confirm this, during my 25 years in the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination I give my “tithe” faithfully just as instructed by the leaders.
I have never received the blessings that they claim that one will receive if one tithes.
Even other people would perceive God’s blessing upon them as they returned to tithing.” So what’s wrong with the above? Well it would probably be easier to answer the question, What’s NOT wrong with the above?
However, I would like to touch on some of the most important reasons why what the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination teaches about tithing is WRONG.
First of all it’s important to understand that Tithing is a Biblical principle, however, it no longer applies because tithing was commanded under the Old Covenant. Tithing was a command under the Mosaic Law, a series of laws that we are no longer obliged to follow.
The Lord doesn’t want us to give under compulsion or under a belief that we have to. Second, I have never heard a tithe message where Malachi 3 wasn’t used.If you continue reading in that chapter you will see that tithes were food products from the land of Israel which were to be used to compensate the Levites for serving God in the Tabernacle as a replacement for their lost land inheritance rights in Israel (see Numbers ).Every mention of tithe there after, is a reference to that law.The entire chapter is the continuous thought of Paul.You can’t just take one verse, pull it out and draw your conclusions from one single verse.
